Classroom Resources: Reactions & Stoichiometry
1 – 9 of 9 Classroom Resources
Interdisciplinary, Photosynthesis | Elementary School
In this activity, students will become familiar with the chemistry components of photosynthesis. They will use role-play and/or demonstrations to describe the purpose of photosynthesis in this activity.
Interdisciplinary, Photosynthesis | Elementary School, Middle School
In this lesson, students will build knowledge through reading an assigned passage, as well as analyze evidence produced from a teacher led demonstration to better understand the process of photosynthesis.
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Oxidation, Photosynthesis, Electron Transfer | High School
In this lesson students will make a dye-sensitized solar cell (also known as DSC or Gratzel cell) using extracts from blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, red cabbage, strawberries, beetroot, spinach and dried hibiscus petals. Students will measure the voltage and the current of various light sources using the created solar cells and then compare the effectiveness of each.
Renewable Energy, Phase Changes, Photosynthesis | Elementary School, Middle School
In this lab, students will learn that even the smallest spaces can have their own climate. They will create a miniature sized terrarium and will observe how sunlight enters in order to warm the air, and in turn heat the soil and seeds. Condensation will build up in the container and the students can observe the water cycle in action, as well as the growth of the seeds over time.
Molecular Structure , Subatomic Particles, Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this lesson, students will learn about how Carbon cycles through Earth’s systems and its importance for life on Earth.
Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this activity, students will use candies to model the rearrangement of atoms from reactant to products during photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this lab, students will rotate through five stations to understand the importance of the reactants required for the process of photosynthesis in a plant. They will also create the chemical equation for the photosynthesis reaction.
Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Conservation of Mass, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change, Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this lesson, students will use colored blocks to represent the elements in photosynthesis and illustrate how they are broken down and reassembled to create glucose.
Elements, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Matter, Molecular Structure, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change, Matter, Photosynthesis, Monomer | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.
